indiscretion, with most fearful qualms of conscience and loathing of him- 
self; on account of this he could not rest, but was obliged to rise and walk 
about (eighth night). 

Head. — Headache especially noticed on shaking the head, associated 
with increased warmth of the body, as if the blood were flowing more rap- 
idly than usual through the vessels (sixth day). — Headache relieved to- 
wards evening (sixth day). — Pulsative headache in the left frontal emi- 
nence, like a pressure and fulness, worse on stooping and sneezing, better 
in the open air (sixth day).- — The headache was seated the whole day in 
the forehead, but afterwards became concentrated beneath the left frontal 
eminence, and disappeared after walking in the cold open air (seventh day). 
— Dulness and heaviness in the head, with pressive headache in both fron- 
tal eminences ; pain like a fulness, aggravated by moving and shaking the 
head, when it seemed as though the brain were moving back and forth 
(seventh day). — On lying down at 11 p.m., just as he was falling asleep, 
but was only half asleep, there was a sensation as if all his senses vanished, 
with an indescribable sensation in the head like vertigo, and a feeling as 
though all the blood left the head, with a prickling in the face; this was 
followed by sudden waking, after which he could not fall asleep for a long 
time, until after midnight, with a distressing burning itching on the scalp. 
He fell asleep towards morning; the sleep was full of vivid dreams of 
everything that he knew, only indistinctly remembered (seventh day).- — 
Dulness of the head, with similar fulness and heaviness in the upper part 
of the abdomen and under the ribs, after a light meal (eighth day). — Pain 
over the whole head, as if a ring were tightened about the head, with 
heaviness. On shaking the head, it seemed as if the brain wabbled to and 
fro. After this he fell asleep, and woke about 7 a.m. with some headache, 
which disappeared on rising ; heaviness and dulness in the head remained 
(ninth day).- — [10.] After washing with cold water, which was very un- 
pleasant, the head felt large; this sensation extended upward from the 
cheeks, was associated with pressure and burning in the throat and oesoph- 
agus, which latter was very violent and almost intolerable, immediately 



102 SPIR^A ULMARIA. 

followed by an attack of vertigo, with heat of the cheeks (ninth day). — 
An hour after the dose, heaviness and dulness of the head, like commenc- 
ing headache (fourteenth day). — A pressive headache and fulness in the 
forehead, worse in the house than in the open air (fourteenth day). — The 
headache disappeared about 8 p.m. (fourteenth day). 

Eye. — In the morning, after rising, the eyes (especially the left eye) 
were filled with mucus, that had dried to crusts on the lashes and in the 
canthi, with indistinct vision, as through a mist, relieved by blinking and 
rubbing the eyes. Lachrymation of the left eye, with smarting and in- 
creased sensation of warmth in it. The sclerotic is bright red (tenth day). 
— On waking after the midday nap, he could not open his eyes for a long 
time, on account of leaden heaviness of the lids, with frequent headache, 
as after intoxication, that continued after rising, with pain and pressure in 
the forehead, as if full. Towards evening the frontal headache was better, 
and was felt more in the left frontal eminence (thirteenth day). — Sensation 
as if something hot mounted into the eyes, causing biting and burning, and 
a feeling as if tears would flow, though they did not (sixth day).

if the blood mounted into the face, with a sensation of heat in the face and 
eyes (sixth day). 

3Iouth. — Slight drawing toothache in the left back teeth, without

Throat. — [20.] After the first dose, sensation of increased warmth in 
the pharynx, extending down the whole length of the oesophagus to the 
stomach, where it seemed to concentrate (second day). A burning pressure 
in the oesophagus, as before noted, usually disappeared over night, and 
immediately reappeared after a dose in the morning; the sensation was 
partly relieved by eating and by drinking, disappeared entirely while eat- 
ing and drinking, but not on empty swallowing (sixth day). The burning 
and pressure in the same spot in the cesophagus was to-day especially se- 
vere ; it seemed as though the oesophagus were forcibly constricted, with 
many eructations of much gas ; this sensation was relieved during the eruc- 
tations, and while eating was associated with a sensation as if a large hard 
body were forcibly pressing through the oesophagus (seventh day). Burn- 
ing in the spot already described in the oesophagus is to-day more like a 
pressure, with a sensation as if the oesophagus were too small, without, how- 
ever, affecting swallowing; it extended up to the pharynx and down into 
the stomach, where there was a peculiar sensation of qualmishness (eighth 
day). — Towards evening, sensation of coldness in the pharynx and oesoph- 
agus is especially noticed ; it even did not disappear after eating (eighth 
day). A cold sensation in the oesophagus extended to both anterior sides 
of the chest, beneath the nipples, and into the upper portion of the pha- 
rynx, with oppression of the chest, which obliged deep breathing (ninth 
day). — Pressure in the pharynx and oesophagus continued the same as 
yesterday (tenth day). — Sensation of increased warmth in the pharynx, 
extending down to the stomach ; feeling of warmth in the oesophagus, op- 
posite the manubrium sterni (fourteenth day). 

(S^OHJYfC/i.— Immediately after the dose the hunger disappeared, and ■ 
only returned about 9.30 P.M., but was soon appeased by a little food (four- 
teenth day). — There was no relish for smoking; a sensation as though one 
had not smoked for a long time, as after a long illness (seventh day). —

—Frequent eructations of much gas (eighth day). — Eructations of much 



SPIRiEA ULMARIA. 103 

gas always after eating and drinking (ninth day). — Repeated eructations 
of gas (twelfth day). — [30.] A sensation of burning warmth in a small 
spot beneath the ensiform process, as if something hot or acrid had been 
taken, though without pain. In the evening this sensation became very 
acute, and almost like heartburn, but less severe (second day). — The sen- 
sation of warmth felt yesterday in the pit of the stomach (cardiac orifice) 
is to-day less in the stomach than in the oesophagus, about the region of 
the manubrium sterni, and is more decidedly a burning sensation, noticed 
after every dose. In the intervals between the doses, this sensation almost 
entirely disappeared, so that it was scarcely noticed ; the heat reappeared 
after each dose (third day). 

A-hdomen. — Frequent emission of very offensive flatus (sixth day). — 
During the stool, moving about and slight griping in the lower part of the 
abdomen (sixth day). — After eating moving about in the navel, with a 
sensation of heaviness in the lower part of the abdomen and pressure upon 
the rectum, with emission of odorless flatus, immediately followed by a 
small crumbly evacuation, after which the heaviness in the abdomen was 
still felt (eighth day). — After a light meal, movement in the lower part 
of the abdomen, with rumbling and slight griping, followed by desire for 
stool, with emission of odorless flatus (ninth day). 

Itectnni and Anus. — Crawling and prickling in the rectum, with 
a sensation as if drawn inward (eighth day). — During the stool, a sensation 
as if the anus would not open sufficiently (sixth day). — The stool, in the 
evening, was followed for a long time by a prickling constrictive sensation 
in the anus (fifth day). — A prickling sensation of closure in the anus, espe- 
cially in the evening (sixth day). — [40.] Sensation of forcible closure of 
the anus, with crawling, prickling, and sticking, more while walking than 
while sitting (eighth day). — In the evening there was several times a sen- 
sation as if a stool would occur, associated with a stitch from the region of 
the bladder to the rectum, which becarne forcibly closed, and some flatus 
was passed, but only after long pressure (sixth day). — Frequent desire for 
stool, that suddenly disappeared (eighth day). 

Stool. — Instead of one stool there were two ; the first, in the morning, 
was unsatisfactory, but not hard ; the fteces were lumpy, like balls of hare's 
dung, without being hard, and of a normal color (fifth day). — Stool, which 
usually occurred in the morning, now occurred about 4 p.m., with long 
pressure and straining, as if the fseces could not be evacuated from the 
rectum ; the evacuation was scanty, hard, like sheep's dung (sixth day). — 
Before falling asleep an evacuation, half of which was hard, the rest soft 
and rather thin, accompanied by prickling, biting, and burning in the anus 
for a long time after the stool (sixth day). — In the evening a small evacu- 
ation, at first thick, afterwards thin, but not hard, with prickling and con- 
traction in the anus after the evacuation (seventh day). — About 1 p.m. a 
small half crumbly, half normal evacuation without difficulty (ninth day). 
— About 10 P.M. a somewhat hard stool, accompanied and followed by 
burning and soreness in the anus, and a sensation as if the anus were drawn 
up into the rectum and something hard were still remaining there (ninth 
day). 

Urinary Organs. — Burning in the orifice of the urethra while urin- 
ating during stool (sixth day). — [50.] The urine passed the previous even- 
ing had become turbid, as if mixed with clay, with a thin film over the 
surface, looking like fat, and breaking to pieces when the liquid was moved ; 
the urine was bright yellow, almost straw-colored (second day). The urine 



104 SPIR^A ULMAEIA. 

passed was bright yellow, but after standing an hour,, a flocculent cloud 
seemed to haug ou the upper surface; an hour later (two hours after urin- 
ating), this cloud sank to the bottom (third day). The urine passed yes- 
terday is cloudy, as if mixed with clay, the surface covered with an iri- 
descent film, with numerous red granules ; these, when collected, had the 
appearance of sand, and when pressed by a knife, gave a crackling noise 
and formed brickdust powder. The urine passed in the morning, fasting, 
was clearer than that of yesterday, but had the same cloud. Theuriue 
became milky soon after it was passed, and after a few hours deposited a 
clear flocculent sediment, which, when collected on the filter, was slimy 
and of a rosy-red color, mingled with much red sand. A part was collected 
from the filter and mixed in the glass tube with nitric acid, which dissolved 
the mucus with odorless frothing; the liquid then had a clear yellow color, 
and the grains of sand fell unaffected to the bottom. Another portion was 
mixed in a glass tube with sulphuric acid, which completely dissolved both 
the mucus and sand, and the liquid became dark brown ; there was no 
frothing, but the liquid had a strong odor of decomposing urine. The 
third portion was mixed with muriatic acid in a glass tube, but there was 
not the slightest change (fourth day). The urine passed in the morning 
was clearer than yesterday, and developed a cloud hanging from the upper 
surface, even before the urine became cold (fifth day). The urine passed 
this morning was decidedly darker than that of yesterday, without, how- 
ever, being too dark ; a cloud immediately formed after becoming cold 
(sixth day). The urine passed the fifth day formed a cloud but no sedi- 
ment; that passed ou the sixth day the same, but had again a red sand, 
and the cloud lying at the bottom exhibited everywhere a number of these 
grains of sand looking like frog-spawn ; the urine passed on the seventh 
day had the same character. The urine passed yesterday was still clear, 
showed no trace of decomposition, though it had stood the whole time in a 
warm room (seventh day). To-day the urine, while yet warm, formed a 
cloud, was clearer than on the fifth and sixth days, but darker than on the 
fifth day (eighth day). The urine passed yesterday became turbid and 
cloudy ; after twenty-four hours had a slimy flocculent sediment of a dirty 
rose-red color. The urine passed toward evening was quite clear and 
lemon-yellow. The urine passed on the fifth day was beginning to decom- 
pose, but without being turbid ; that of the sixth, seventh, and ninth days 
is unchanged ; that of the eighth day has, in addition to a cloud, a white 
pellicle, like an iridescent film of fat on the surface. The urine passed to- 
day developed a cloud while still warm (ninth day). The urine passed on 
the ninth day is very turbid and cloudy, with iridescent flakes, that with 
difficulty sank to the bottom ; it has already begun to decompose. The 
urine passed in the morning, and also that of the eighth day, has not begun 
to decompose. The cloud lying in the bottom of the vessel is full of large 
grains of red sand. The urine passed on the ninth day has the same pecu- 
liarities, with the addition of a white fatty film on the surface, in which 
are entangled numerous grains of red sand. The urine passed on the tenth 
day is the same, rather turbid yellow, has a cloud at the bottom, but no 
perceptible colored sand. The uriue passed last evening is lemon-yellow 
and very turbid (tenth day).

of the room seemed very cold and as though he had been chewing pepper- 
mint (eighth day). 

Chest. — In addition to the burning sensation in the fesophagus felt all 
day, there was a pressive sensation in the region of the manubrium sterni; 
was exactly like the pressure caused by swallowing too large a morsel of 
food or a large piece of hard-boiled egg (fifth day). 

Pulse. — Pulse 90, hard and tense; afterwards 66, weak, soft (sixth 
day); 60 (seventh day); small, contracted, hard, 100; afterwards full,

the head, shoulders, and chest, with a feeling as though sweat would break 
out, and with a moist forehead ; the veins of the hands were swollen, the 
hands burnt and were moist. Very great heat in the face, like rush of

increased, but on the fourth day it was increased by 200 grams, this, how- 
ever, is not to be ascribed with certainty to the Squills, because the prover 
had taken at least 400 grams more water than usual during the day ; on 
the fifth day, when the usual amount of water was taken, the urine fell to 
the normal quantity,.^' — The average daily quantity of urine, was 1358 

■\ The prover was usually in the habit of urinating moderately only twice a day. — 
Hahnismann. 

X The primary action of Squills upon the urinary organs is, at first great desire 
to urinate, s. 122, with profuse emission of urine, 190, especially of urine clear as 
water, 182, 189, at least watery urine even if not profuse, \'.}'i. Several hours after 
the cessation of the first and positive action of Squills, there follows a secondary 
action (reaction) as the opposite of the primary action, namely, slight inclination 
to urinate, scanty discharge, and seldom micturition, 196, 187, 194. Sometimes of 
the usual color, 193, but frequently of a dark color, 199, 200, and also with great 
urging to urinate, though only a little, 185, or even no micturition' at all.'lSl. 
Now, as all this was not Unown, not investigated, and not even the methods of re- 
search recognized, so there were very few cures of dropsical diseases by Squills, 
through the several thousand years in which it was employed (for an unknown pe- 
riod previijus to the times of the Greeks, Squills was considered by the Egyptians 
the only remedy for this disease); most of the patients of this sort were all the 
more quickly and surely hurried into the grave by means of this drug. It was 
always the cause of great rejoicing at first, i^hat so much urine was expelled, and a 
consequent cure was eagerly looked for ; but it was not known that this was a pri- 
mary action of Squills, and that in this case only the opposite of the previous dis- 
eased condition, and consequently only a palliative, and it was seen with astonish- 
ment, that in spite of increasing the doses there was nothing more than this reac- 
tion, namely, darker and constantly more scanty and even more and more seldom 
micturition. Only a few of the diseases attended with swelling (these are very 
numerous, and the swelling is only asinglesymptom, hence the namedropsy, which 
is applied to all of them, as if they were only a single disease, always the same, an 
unpardonable falsity in pathology), only a few of these i*ropsical diseases, whose 
symptoms have a general similarity to the positive symptoms of Squills, but whose 
urinary symptoms especially coincide closely with the primary svinptoms of Squills 
(these are seldom), can be really and permanently cured by Squills. Much more 
frequently will forms of diuresis (diabetes) occur in which tiiis drug, increasing the 
secretion of urinous its primary action, and also corresponding homceopathicaily to 
the other symptoms of the disease, will be found a specific and curative remedv.—

j The result of all my observations is that Squills excites mucous secretion in 
the trachea and bronchi ; the mucus is thin and easily expectorated by coughing, 
but only as its primary action, see ss. 21.5, 216, 209, 213, 212. Hence it happens 
that the administration'of so-called expectorants is only palliative, that is, the con- 
tinued use of them must inevitably increase the trouble if the filling up of the chest 
by tenacious firm mucus is the chronic trouble, for after the first eflect, loosening 
the chest, a reaction fcillows and makes the mucus constantly more tenacious and 
the cough drier. See ss. 207, 208, 211, 214. Kather would this drug prove cura- 
tive in excessive secretion of mucus in the chest, as recommended by Weickard. — 
Hahnemann.

turies are examined, it is found from time to time, that tTie best of tliem, relyin» 
upon the empirical basis of experience, have used Squills with brilliant results for 
inflammation of the thoracic organs, with stitches in the side, althou(;h the great 
acridity of the drug on the tongue and internally, in large doses, was perfectly well 
known to them. It could not happen otherwise than that they should be very suc- 
cessful with it (as indeed they were), in view of the many homoeopathic primary ac- 
tions of the drug upon the chests of healthy people ; compare ss. 212,220 222,225, 
226, 227, 230, 231, 232, 233, 234, 235, 237, 238, 239. They were far more successful 
than the regular school now in fashion, which, from theoretical grounds, employs a 
so-called antiphlogistic and unmerciful bloodletting, and are exceedingly unsuccess- 
ful. They would have been more successful in curing pleurisy, if the cases had been 
compared with the symptoms of Squills, now so well known, and if it had beene.xhih- 
ited homoeopaihically, all extraneous influences had been removed from the patient, 
and the drug had not been mixed with any other, and had been given not only singly 
but in a sufficiently small dose. I have found in most cases scarcely a quiutillionth, 
often only a sextillionth part of a grain, and even less (only a very'small portion of 
a drop of the solution), most serviceable. — Hahxemasn.

restrained, it was observed that she pursued imaginary objects in the air, or 
picked at the bedclothes, as in the delirium of typhoid fever ,"^ . — *The appear- 
ance of the patient suggested mania, and I might at once have pronoun,ced it 
a ease of delirium tremens, had I not ivell known the temperate habits of my 
patient. As I sa,t observing him, he suddenly turned towards the ivall, exclaim- 
ing, "There are those bugs, help me to catch them!" " What bugsf" I 
asked. '■ There," he replied, " a long train of bedbugs, and after them 
a procession of beetles, and here come crawling over me a host of cock- 
roaches." He shrank back in alarm. Then suddenly he turned to me, 
saying, " I believe I know they are not really bugs ; but except once in 
awhile, they seem real to me !" This scene luas many times repeated,™. — 
*It was in a state of wild delirium. It was with great difficulty that the mother 
coidd hold it in her lap. It would forcibly throw out its legs and stiffen them, 
and at the same time throw them luide apart from each other. The arms were 
being constantly thrown out, as if trying to reach and get hold of something ; 
and sometimes it seemed as if some object ■ had been secured, and was for a 
moment fumbled in the fingers. The pupils were dilated and the eyes looked 
wild. Its cry was a kind of scream; a little froth was in the mouth; the sur- 
face of the skin was hot ; the restlessness iva-t very great j'^". — * Began to look 
stupdd, seemed to forget herself, and gave incoherent ansivers (after one hour); 
seemed to sit like a perfect idiot, for two and a half hours (after two hours 
and a half) ; began to grow worse, biting a mail's hand, sometimes crying 
out that she saw oats, dogs, and rabbits, at the top, sides, and middle of 
the room; at other times, with great eagerness, catching at imaginary objects 
with her hands, and declaring that she saw many people who were not present. 
She suffered a continuance of these symptoms with little variation, and 
totally without rest for nine hours, being all this time restrained in bed by 
force in a raving and maniacal state,"'. — In about five minutes he became 
" wild, and didn't know any one." In ten minutes I found him seated in 
a chair, leaning forward on his knees, staring wildly, countenance bathed 
in perspiration, pupils largely dilated, talking vaguely, and perfectly uu- 
conscious of surrounding objects, pulse 90 and full, hands and arras con- 
vulsed, every few moments legs unable to support his body, and dragged after 
him when we tried to get him to walk,^°*. — Although he changed postures 
a little, yet he remained stupid for six or seven hours ; then he raged furi- 
ously, requiring two per=!ons to hold him in bed ; notwithstanding which, 
he raised himself up, tossed greatly, and seemed to catch at the bystanders 
with his hands, uttering incoherent sentences ; at last he became sensible 
and more quiet, restless, and delirious by turns,". — She is all the time in-

gleets her duties, now and then thinks she is not fitted for her position ; 
after the fall equinox ; from the darkness, being alone, and in the morning 
her state is aggravated; she ivants light (sunshine) and eompaiii/,"*. — *The 
child had the look of one suffering from the effects of alcoholic drinks; an ex- 
cited condition, not a moment quiet, constant motion of the hands and feet, at 
one time singing, jumping, whistling, with lively grimaces, and a most jovial 
condition, in vjhich she sang melodies in a perfectly correct manner; at another 
time she became excited, beat about her, jumped, out of bed, reeled whenever 
she attempted to stand, and when she attempted to sit up fell over to either side; 
the next moment she had the most vivid hallucinations ; talked much in a dis- 
connected manner, it seemed as though her tongue could not follow her chaotic 
thoughts,''^^. — [50.] Complete stupefaction and general insensibility to ex- 
ternal impressions, only interrupted by a few transient moments of recog- 
nition; as a rule, the boy noticed nothins about him, did not recognize his 
parents and sisters, heard nothing and felt nothing; he seemed to be in a 
condition of frightful excitement, with constant mental activity, as shown 
by the expression of the face and gesticulations, appearing to be occupied 
with the most vivid fancies, especially joyous, and, at times, frightful images; 
at times, when he was able to talk, his speech consisted of the most foolish 
and active delirium, with prattling; sometimes he seemed to be frightened, 
sometimes astonished, sometimes pathetic; but it was very seldom that he 
uttered intelligible words, and as a rule, there were no words, only a shrill 
screaming and groaning or loud laughing, with attempts to sing or whistle,''^'. 
— *She would, while held in her mother's lap, suddenly dart as if in terror, 
with outstretched -arms and glaring eyes, and luith such an effort that it required 
much exertion to hold her. This would last but a moment, during which she 
would cry incoherently ; then a calm would come over her, and she would 
laugh, grasp at imaginary objects, conveying the hand to her mouth as if 
eatinp berries, point to something on the floor, etc.,™*. — *He muttered unin- 
telligible sounds, looked wildly around, and could not be made to do what he 
was told, though he 'ipparently understood all that %vas going on. He kept 
wanting, seemingly, to clutch at some person or persons, whom he imagined 
were before him ; but he could not use his arms, though he tried to do so (after 
twelve hours),™'. — Complete insensibility, broken occasionally by a parox- 
ysm, during which they would utter some indistinct sounds, and throw the 
hands about the head as if attempting to ward off some threatening evil ; 
this would soon subside into a semicomatose state, not the stupidity, how- 
ever, which results from Opium or its preparations, but rather a state of 
intense apathy, which persisted for a few seconds, when the delirium would 
again recur unless sooner produced by the efforts of those about to render 
assistance, when the state of excitement assumed such a form and violence 
as to render necessary a certain amount of restraint to prevent escape from 
the imaginary object which engaged the attention ; occasionally they would 
grasp at something in the space in front, appear as if they possessed or re- 
jected it, then turn the head as if called by a voice beside them and attempt 
to speak to it; *the sound resembling^ a squeak more than the natural 
tone of the voice. Neither of them was able to support himself alone 
upon his feet,^ but would take a step or two with staggering gait, falling to 
the floor as if intoxicated or in a state of complete exhaustion. '^During 
the period of excitement the extremities were in constant motion, co-ordinate 
only so far as they related to the correspo)iding limb, yet uiantinq in that har- 
mony of action ivhich is found in those movements of a higher order, as stand- 
ing in the erect posture, walking, etc.; there was constant action of the fingers

as if attempting to pick somethinff from the person or the bedclothes ; at times 
they would burst into paroxysms of excessive laughter, which would jxTj^i^t 
some secouds, then suddenly cease ; at times they would have a smile, so 
quiet aud pleasant, that we could not but contrast it with the highly excited 
state previously witnessed,™. — Sometimes she would appear for a moment 
to be relieved from her anxiety, and sit silent, with her eyes fixed on the 
ground, as if absorbed in contemplation; ivhilst her hands ivere employed in 
picking at the clothes, or anything that happened to be before her, similar to 
those in the last stage of some fevers. *Theu, again, she would start invol- 
untarily, quick as if a shock of electricity had passed through her body, iviih 
an air of affright, and a loud shriek; her limbs writhed with convidsive mo- 
tions and her countenance and body distorted in every direction; apparently 
affected with great pain and anxiety. At other times, in her intervals of 
ease, she would sing, and sometimes laugh, but could not be made to utter 
a word; neither did she appear to take notice of anything that was said to 
her. In short, the functions of her mind appeared to be entirely deranged. 
These paroxysms occurred at intervals of five or ten minutes, and continued 
about the same period. She manifested a great aversion to fluids of every 
kind. When a cup of water was brought to her lips, she would instantly 
start from it, and sometimes relapse into her paroxysm ; so great was 
her aversion to it, that it was with the utmost diffiulty a teaspoonful of 
any fluid could he forced down her throat,*". — The appearance of the 
family was extremely ludicrous. The children were laughing, crying, 
singing, dancing, and playing all imaginable antic pranks. They had no 
correct estimation of distance, or the size of objects ; were reaching their hands 
to catch hold of objects across the room, and again running against persons and 
things which they appeared to view as distant. The nail-heads in the floor 
were pieces of money, which they eagerly tried to pick up. A boy, appar- 
ently fancying himself undressed, caught a hat belonging to a student, 
thrust his foot into it, pulled with both hands on the brim, and began to 
fret that he could not get on his " trowsers." The parents frequently called 
on the children to behave themselves; but their own actions being equally 
eccentric, they afforded a ridiculous exhibition of family government,^"". — ■ 
They turned natural fools upon it forseveral days. One would blow up a 
feather in the air, another would dart straws at it with great fury; another, 
stark naked, was sitting up in a corner, like a monkey, grinning and making 
mouths at them; a fourth would fondly kiss and paw his companions, and 
sneer in their faces, with a countenance more antic than a Dutch doll. In 
this frantic condition they were confined, lest in theii' folly they should 
destroy themselves. In eleven days they recovered, unconscious of any- 
thing which had passed,"". — He became delirious, and knew nothing of 
himself until he was relieved; during this time he performed many queer 
antics; one time he was off' to hitch up his team ; again he gathered up 
sticks and placed them together to build a fire ; then he would motion as 
though he would scrape lice and bugs together, shake them out of hats; 
pull the paper ofiP the wall to get them out; pick them off^ himself and 
tramp them, etc. ; see rats running and try to catch them ; he was very talka- 
tive; did not know even his wife, nor where he was; wanted to go home, etc. 
(after fifteen to thirty minutes),^"*. — ^Screaming, catching at imaginary 
objects, in the air, or rather striking at them, for it was evident that these sjjecir a

time sereaminy and sobbing violently. Her eyes would, to appearance, fol- 
low the imaginary object for a moment or two, before she made the effort 
to escape from its supposed approach. She rapidly became furiously delir- 
ious, struck at, pushed, or attempted to hite, every person who came near, or 
any object that was offered to her. In two and a half hours she knew no 
person, and had been wholly insensible to surrounding objects for above an 
hour and a half She remained in this condition for about three hours, 
when a stage of coma supervened, lasting two hours. There was a return 
of the excitement, but not so severe as that which first presented itself; 
neither was it attended by ocular spectra, or tetanic spasm,'"^. — The first 
symptom was a high degree of exhilaration, in which she caused much 
merriment by her extravagant gestures and speeches. This soon became 
alarming, and when I was called to see her, she was laughing, crying, and 
singing, by turns, proceeding from one to the other state with the greatest 
rapidity. She occasionally started with great force and alarm, crying out 
that she was going to fall, when she would cling to her mother with as 
much desperation as if she were about to be thrown from a precipice. She 
would next become calm, then whistle, and afterwards point with her finger 
at muscse volitantes, which she followed with the eye and hand, at last 
clutching at them, with an appearance of disappointment at want of suc- 
cess,". — [60.] The child was to all appearance happy, talking all the inco- 
herent nonsense that can be imagined, laughing, and in constant motion; 
but labored under so great a debility, that it could not stand or walk with- 
out tottering, and several times in attempting it fell down; it was a per- 
fect delirium mite,". — The unfortunate, after swallowing the powder (of 
Stramonium), remains for a long time out of his mind, laughing or crying 
or sleeping, for the most; even speaking to another and answering, so that 
you might think sometimes that he was in his right mind, although he is 
not in his senses, nor recognizes the one to whom he is speaking, and does 
not recollect the conversation when he returns to consciousness,'*. — After 
sleepinti: a few hours he suddenly sprang up with most remarkable jumping 
about on his hands and feet, and talking animatedly ; eight hours after 
this he became conscious, *with trembling of the limbs, vihich ivere inconstant 
motion ; the face was red and puffy, luitJi vi,olent throbbing in the arteries; the 
pupils tuere extremely dilated, respiration short, rapid, abdomen meteoric and 
painful to pressure, tongue U'hite and dry™. — On becoming warm in bed, I 
felt a host of new sensations creeping over both body and mind. My whole 
frame was affected with a tremulous vibration, but most sensibly felt 
through my abdomen, attended with a prickly sensation over the whole 
body. My mind became extremely timid and restless, which rendered all 
attempts to compose myself to sleep fruitless. After a teaspoonful of elixir 
of paregoric, I felt every symptom getting worse ; the 'surface of my body 
was bathed with a clammy perspiration; whenever I attempted to close 
my eyes I was assailed by imaginary spectres, in the most hideous forms and 
menacing attitudes ; and what was still to my torment, my bed was sus- 
pended and tantalized like a feather between two floors,"-. — A clouded state 
of faculties, horrible obfuscation. A patient twice told me he was quite 
alarmed at seeing how bewildered and incapable I was; I upset everything 
I touched; he seemed to me to be talking out of a cloud, or as if he was 
a figure in a vision and not a reality, and when he ceased talking, I sub- 
sided into a sort of bewilderment, from which I could with difficulty rouse 
myself to attend to his case ; my writing was almost an unintelligible 
scrawl; I lay down again till evening, dizzy and incapable, with dull 



STRAMONIUM. 187 

headache on vertex, but not much pain ; I could not realize anything ; my 
wife sitting by my bed seemed like a phantom, and I put out my hand 
occasionally, to feel if she were a real existence. Before this extreme 
condition of bewilderment came on, I was excessively forgetful; would 
begin a sentence with a perfectly clear idea of what I intended to say, but 
forgot all about it befoie I had completely expressed myself; also I used 
wrong words, and expressed my meaning badly. My s])eech was thick, as 
if my tongue were too large for my mouth, though I felt nothing wrong iu 
my tongue, but only a sort of globbering articulation (ninth day),"". — 
She was first discovered after drinking the tea, wandering in the backyard 
scrambling along the fence, as if trying to get hold of something indis- 
tinctly visible, for being called to account for her strange behavior, she 
could give no reply, but slavered and muttered as if drunk. She appeared 
foolish, had the peculiar facetious leer often observed in drunkenness. If 
let alone, she continued clawing everything within reach, and seemed in- 
clined to constant motion,"''. — When asked, she said she had eaten Stramo- 
nium ; this was all she remembered (after half an hour) ; her mother gave 
her medicines, but she continued dull and stupid the greater part of the 
day, till brought to the dispensary ; part of the day she was unmanageable 
and talked wildly, so that her mother had to give her the medicine by 
force. On admission (after eleven hours), she had a wild appearance, was 
stupid, and unconscious of her state ; when roused, she gave a foolish 
vacant look around, '^^ — When pinched or tickled, he became very angry,

citement passed away and was succeeded by a state of depression and strong 
comatose tendency,'". — [90.] *They got wild, ran about the room, jumping, 
talking nonsense; saw chickens and cats, spoke to them, also to their toys,''''. — 
After the usual treatment, for about twenty minutes, the child went to 
sleep, and woke in about twenty minutes, and was like a mad child ; it 
would hold out its hands as though it wanted a glass of water, then bring 
them to its mouth and sup as if it were drinking water or other fluid; it 
would put its fingers into its mouth and even bite them, and also its 
mother's fingers, whenever she put them about its mouth, also screaming 
incessantly,"". — Their attention could not be aroused to anything which

drawn from under her, and that everything was falling on her ; kept holding

expression of his face and movements, he seemed at times to be chasing, 
or fleeing from imaginary objects, '^°. — He can nowhere obtain rest, he is 
terrified by fanciful delusions (even though his eyes are open), ''they appear

of the limbs and body seemed to change to more voluntary movements, as 
if the boy were acting in pantomime, though at times real convulsions oc- 
curred; after two hours (and after a bath) he began to move his mouth as 
if he wished to speak ; this continued for some time, until he tried to utter 
articulate sounds, which became more and more distinct ; the first words 
he spoke were, "Take care, I shall strike;" after a time he seemed to be 
living in a perfectly ideal childish world, with games of school, etc.; these 
ideas seemed to alternate in a loose way with speeches, songs, and verses, 
which were recited and sung in various tones; also he seemed to be eating 
berries, cherries, etc., made chewing motions with his mouth, and counted 
with his fingers ; in all these acts he seemed to be playing and happy ; *all 
his ideas seemed to consist of mere reproductions ; there was nothing 
original, and there were no new combinations,"*. — *She appeared occu- 
pied with hallucinations, her gaze, was fixed, and she seemed trying to 
reach towards something which she saw,""". — For some days the patient 
was affected with hallucinations, and thought that one side of him was alive, 
while the other side was buried,''^". — At times, when under the influence of 
the poison, she seemed to herself to be engaged in her usual avocation,

every respect the routine procedure of one thus engaged, '^°.J — At one time 
the child seemed to hear and paid attention when spoken to, at other times 
paid no attention, and seemed unconscious, and was, apparently, occupied 
with hallucinations and fanciesj'^'^ . — *He walks about the room absorbed in
